OLW: Clouds

Well hello there bunnies!

We have returned from an absolutely lovely holiday.  I have to thank  Susan for covering my turns and doing the commenting.  Does she rock or what?!

While on holiday, I had the great pleasure to meet up with a cardmaking celebrity and her cutie-pie son.  We had a nice morning at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire followed by a lovely lunch at a local restaurant.  I may have touched her (although not inappropriately) in the hope of having some of her awesome talent rub off on me.

Also, while on holiday, I received my yummy and delicious A Muse Studio order through the absolutely lovely and spectacularly talented, Krystie Lee.

Speaking of Krystie, we have a couple of nice surprises coming up for you before summer is over.

And finally, this week’s OLW challenge.  I jokingly asked my five year old son for a suggestion for this week’s theme.

He suggested, flowers, trees, clouds.  These are things I usually ask him to draw when he is making a picture for his great-grandmother.  I thought about it for a minute and thought, hey!  Yes!  Clouds.  The theme will be clouds!

Card stock: something cheap from Michael’s (oh, the horror)
Stamps: Cloud background from Impression/Obsession (I may have had an order shipped to me on vacation),
Balloon (Studio Calico), Sentiment (Um, I forget)

  • Darn you, Jennifer. I have a card that I was going to post that, by sheer coincidence, has clouds on it. Unfortunately, my balloon is popped up, so technically, it’s not one layer. Must put on my thinking cap and see what else I can do!

    Hi, I have just discovered this wonderful web site this summer. I would love to “play” along with many of the challenges but do not have a blog/web site. I have looked online through several, but it is fairly overwhelming. Is the a favorite one that most of you use? I would love some direction. Thanks, and that for all the inspiring creations.

  • I love your card – the hot air balloon is a lovely strong image and those clouds are wonderfully realistic.
